Who's afraid of the big, bad liberal media?

The liberal media is our side's ongoing excuse for standing for nothing, doing nothing, and fighting for nothing. The liberal media has Republicans so psyched out we might as well put our GOP politicians in little league baseball uniforms that are sponsored by "Chico's Bail Bonds" on the back.

DEACE: How to go from civil rights icon to bigot in one quote

Tony Dungy has become the first civil rights icon to become a bigot in American history. This is the price you pay when you dare to defy the fundamentalist group-think of what lesbian conservative Tammy Bruce calls the "Gay Gestapo." Published July 22, 2014

DEACE: Can conservatives fight a two-front war?

What do you get when you cross a president with an underwater approval rating with an opposition party with an even lower approval rating? Why, the 2014 election cycle, of course. It has the potential to be a watershed moment in the future of the American political landscape because, for the first time in the history of the movement, conservatives are attempting to fight a two-front war.

DEACE: Dumb on the 4th of July

DEACE: The GOP establishment says no more 'Iowa Nice' to Conservatives

In my home state of Iowa, the undocumented Democrat known as Republican Governor (for life) Terry Branstad, and the corporatist shills surrounding him could be poised to put the finishing touches on a complete rout of their own base. The end result could be the Republican Party of Iowa electing its third chairman in the last 28 months. Published June 10, 2014

DEACE: 2016 is all about electability

After suffering through two straight presidential election losses, and losing the popular vote in five of the last six, even conservatives are now talking about "electability." Of course, conservatives have a different idea of what that term means than the ruling class in Washington, D.C. Published June 9, 2014
